US beat Fance in Games women's soccer
04:15 AEST Thu Jul 26 2012

Alex Morgan scored twice as the US women's football team rallied from an early deficit Wednesday to open their Olympics with a 4-2 win over France.

The Americans trailed 2-0 after 14 minutes, allowing more goals than they had conceded in any game since the World Cup final loss to Japan last year.

But Abby Wambach answered in the 19th, Morgan in the 32nd, Carli Lloyd in the 56th and Morgan again in the 66th in an Olympic football tournament that began two days before the opening ceremony and 400-plus miles away from London. Football is one of two sports that starts early so it can play a full slate of games.

The Americans next play Colombia on Saturday. The French will face North Korea.
